Pfizer Vaccination Protects Against COVID-19 Delta Variant Death in Scotland

…according to a letter at New England Journal of Medicine.

1,564,000 adults were tested for COVID-19 between April 1 and August 15, 2021. Of those, 114, 706 had a positive PCR test for COVID-19 and were deemed “cases” irrespective of symptoms. 201 deaths were attributed to COVID-19.

The AztraZeneca vaccine was also judged very effective against death.

As of mid-June 2021, 80% of the adults in Scotland had received at least the first dose of a vaccine. Scotland has 5.5 million residents.
